Knuckleduster iPhone Case

3D printed knuckleduster phone case on Instructables:

Talking on your cell phone can be a dangerous affair. Better arm yourself with some kind of defence in case someone tried to tangle with you while you’re gabbing away. What better way than to combine a knuckleduster with a phone case! You may have seen these neat “knuckle” iPhone cases, which is an iPhone case within a knuckleduster. However I wasn’t a fan of the $99 price tag, so I decided to make my own. 

I have zero experience with any type of 3D modeling software. So, you can understand my apprehension when I wanted to make my own custom 3D printed object. Luckily there was a very detailed Instructable already written on how to make your own action figure that outlined the process, showing that mashing up existing 3D models is easy. Making my own custom 3D model was so simple I  was able to make my model in about an hour on the computer. 

This project uses the free modelling tools Netfabb, and MeshMixer. I printed my model through another service, but there’s currently an offer through Instructables to print a model for free! You could make your own for almost nothing! How great is that?!
